Large-scale processing of non-cohesive soils
Stabilization ensures that the water is durably bound in the soil.
Lime and cement provide stability
This is achieved by mixing a lime or cement binder into the soil. Particularly when stabilizing the soil with cement, the base becomes more resistant to traffic loads, ingress of water and frost in the long term. Soil requiring stabilization is frequently boggy and can only be driven over by powerful vehicles with all-wheel drive. For this reason, soil stabilizers have large studded tyres, high traction and a powerful travel drive system. Their mixing rotors mix the previously spread binder into the soil to depths of up to 56 cm in a single pass. This reduces the water content and makes the soil friable for perfect subsequent compaction by vibratory compactors.
